'Grand Theft Auto 5' More Profitable Than Any Film Or Book Ever

Cruetz says that, since its release in 2013, "GTA 5" has sold over 90 million units and taken in $6 billion in revenue. The popular yet insanely violent video game has sold over 90 million units to date.

From looking at the infographic that was created by MarketWatch to show just how far ahead GTA V is when compared to other games and movies, James Cameron's Avatar didn't come close to GTA V's profits. This places the game in third place as the highest-selling video games of all time.

Developers Rockstar is now focusing on launching Red Dead Redemption in October 2018, but analysts have predicted that following the release of that western themed game, we'll start to hear more about what will be involved in Grand Theft Auto 6.

Rockstar's open-world masterpiece has graced the top-sellers chart for all platforms for more than four and a half years, and has since then, raked in over $6 billion. At the very least, there are some who purchased the title for the multiplayer alone.

Rockstar is set to earn even more money later this year when it releases Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 and Xbox One on October 26th, 2018. The PlayStation 3 console holds the most GTA V players, claiming 38.2 percent of gamers.

There have been a whopping 15 Grand Theft Auto games in the series and all have their quirky nuances that make them great. And when you consider how much money GTA Online brings in every month, it's not hard to understand why the game has become so profitable.

"I think it's a wild outlier", Cowen analyst Doug Creutz said. Creutz tells Market Watch that DVD and streaming revenue might add an extra billion, but that still leaves "GTA 5" beyond its reach.
